too high pace of work and poor working conditions get nurses to move from full-time to part-time.
It is not enough just to give the nurses the ability to ask for a full-time position. The employer must also make it attractive for the employees.
It takes Grete Christensen, president of the Danish Sygeplejeråd.
Wednesday announced the Danish Regions all five regions from next year will be able to offer a right for the nurses and social assistants to go full-time.
In practice, it comes to mean that if a nurse wants full time, can he or she go for his head, which is thus obliged to give him a full-time position.
- It is really good (we now have a right, red.) But this is not done, without that employers also invest in it and shows very clearly, that it is actually a mission for them, says Grete Christensen.
today is barely half of the country's 38.000 nurses on a part time basis. The same applies to 45 percent of the approximately 8000 social and health care assistants.
But Denmark comes with the demographic, which is the development of the population, to need far more hands in the coming years.
And the hands considers, among other Danish Regions and the government can be obtained by getting more people to go from part-time to full-time.
But according to the nurse-the president is only a small part that wants it, as it looks now.
Grete Christensen adds that today there is a too high pace of work and poor working conditions, to it will make a significant difference.
- If you must persuade any of those who, today, has gone part-time to full-time, then you need to present them with a plan that looks significantly different.
- You have to convince them that, for example, there is more in this here section, which comes on a full-time, so they get a different pace of work, she says.
